Tonight the Great Pumpkin will rise out of the pumpkin patch.

True story, I was planning on shutting this blog down a few days ago. Just slinking away and hoping that no one noticed. Instead I plan to use this as a forum to solve the world's problems. First up - what should I carve in my Halloween pumpkin this year?

In the past I have done Dragonball Z, Mickey Mouse, a pirate, MY OWN FACE, and Batman to name a few. You can see some of them here, there are a lot missing, but I am too lazy to go look for the pictures.

Just like every year, I am stumped for an idea. I like to pick fun things that are creative and recognizable. Oh, and hopefully aren't time consuming. Cause you know, I've got a whole lotta "Hills" tivo'ed that need watching. That Batman took only 20 minutes. It was the stupid hollowing/cleaning out the pumpkin that took 40 minutes.

I'd ask the kids but they always come up with crazy sh*t like I'm Michelangelo of pumpkin carving or something. Any suggestions?

Don't you dare shut your blog down! Or I will have to find other ways to stalk you.

Nice shoes, btw. And you have something on your chin. There...you got it.

WHAT?! You would just leave us!? I need my O. G. fix! And I made your jell-o oranges the other day for a tea party and they were the biggest seller. Who knew, princess fairies would pick jell-o orange slices over tea cookies with blueberry jam in the middle. Not very "tea party" of them if you ask me!

You should carve the slackmistress logo! It's on my site. Sure, the kids won't know what it is, but they can deal with that in therapy later.

So, "NO!" on leaving the blogger world...

And why don't you just do wolverine slash marks on the pumpkin and call it a day?

How about a big bite mark on the pumpkin?

(And don't fold up blogging shop.) (Please.)

How about one of the characters from Yo Gabba Gabba? They have a printable stencil here:
and it doesn't look to time consuming.

Please don't shut down your blog. I've been reading it for a while and i love it :)

You can't just go and leave all of us lurkees in the lurch! Anyway HOW do you do such amazing carvings? Our attempts in the UK are seriously restricted because we only had turnips to carve when we were little.

I'm surprised you've done it this long. Or as often.

We were just at the lizzie borden house last month to get the bobblehead...the car died for the first time on the trip when we tried to leave. The car died for good in front of a mental hospital two states over.


&e says lizzie borden doesn't like people who go to the gift shop after hours.

Personally I think they were terribly unattractive people and wonder why the legend stuck. The lady who runs the bed and breakfast is very nice tho.

I was going to suggest Hello Kitty and friends, but Yo Gabba Gabba sounds cool!

Jenn . . . . don't leave!

Pumpkin crud is rooted to the bottom of the pumpkin - ergo, cut a hole in the bottom, let it all schlep out - minimal scraping afterwards is necessary. You can still cut a lid for the top if you really want.

Count me as one vote for a Hello Kitty pumpkin and one vote against closing down the blog.

Just doing my civic duty.

Personally, I don't like to carve my pumpkins. That way, I can keep them looking pretty on my porch until the following June or July. f
